Membership


ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP FEE: $35

Please download and send in the completed Membership Application (below) by mail or email, along with a cheque or E-Transfer (addresses on the application form).

MEMBER PAGES ON THE WEBSITE

The annual VAW membership fee entitles you to have your very own page on the VAW website. This is one of the many benefits of being a member of the VAW.

When you click on Members in the top navigation bar of the website, you will find a gallery of Member photos and names arranged at the top of the page. Click on one of these and that member's very own website page will open.

However, you MUST submit a photo to have a page. No photo, no page. The best we can do is include your name in a list of "more members" at the end of this gallery.

What type of photo can you submit?

- Ideally, a head shot of yourself. Or, just a photo of yourself taken in a garden, on a trip, while painting, etc.

- Alternatively, a self-portrait (line drawing, sketch, painting, etc.). Surprisingly enough, many artists have these!

- Last resort: one of your pieces of artwork - perhaps a signature painting

You are also allowed to include any contact information you wish to be made public: phone number, email address, website, or the name and address of a studio or shop. Personal addresses cannot be included on these pages.

Please email your photo image, along with all contact information, to Tina Clancy at visualartistsofwelland@gmail.com.

MEMBER PAGE SURCHARGE: $10

For an additional $10 per year, you can have more information and images of your artwork on your Member page:

a) your Artist Bio, Statement, and any other information you wish to include about yourself and your art (ex. information about classes, etc.),

b) up to 10 photos of your art, each with the following information: Title, Size, Medium, and Price (optional). Once these photos are placed on your page, they are fed randomly into the slide show on the opening Home page of the website.

Send information and images to Tina at visualartistsofwelland@gmail.com

You will have the opportunity to refresh your information and photos each year, and you must renew your $10 payment to keep the extra information and photos visible.
